Yesterday was a busy day. I worked 10 hrs (I tracked it) and ended my day at 9:30pm almost falling to sleep on my office chair during a meeting. But it was a good day.
I’d like to share my favorite podcasts during the pandemic. Two groups:
MUST listen: these are the ones that I listen almost every single episode, and aim to work back to their archives.
The New Corner Office: I like that Laura gives daily practical tips to work better and more efficiently in under 5 min.
Before Breakfast: these are also short episodes that give tips to improve quality of life. Many times I smile when i listen to it wondering how can Laura comes up with these every day.
No Stupid Questions: this is a new show hosted by the author of Grits and host of freak economics. Their episodes are 30-45 min long and discuss questions that i’m sure everyone has wondered before.
Best Laid Plans: this is brand new and run by Sarah, one of my favorite blogger and who inspired me to start a flexible journal system. She gives practical tips to use journal to organise our lives. I especially like that she makes it sound simple, not as complex as other bullet journal posts/videos I’ve seen.
Simple Families: I found it recently and I am working my way back to the archive. I enjoyed every single episode so far, experienced based parenting tips to make family life simple but rich.
Gratitude Diaries: I’ve just finished the book and I like the podcast much more as it’s more diverse in topic and ways to apply gratitude in everyday life. I also like it’s very short!
Best of Both Worlds: well, kind of obvious as it’s hosted by Sarah and Laura. I can relay with many of things they discuss as mothers who work full time. It’s like being in a group meeting with like-minded moms.
Slo Mo: this is not a light podcast as he touches upon hard/deep questions that are soul searching, but I love it. It opens my mind for new perspective to many things, happiness in particular.
Choose to listen: these are the one that I’d look at the show notes before deciding to listen it or not as not all topics are of my interest.
Freakeconomics: in case you don’t know, I’m an economist so I like to listen how economics can be used to analyse everything!
The good list: Tsh shares practical tips for a better life.
Herself: discussion among women about life, parenting, friendship, marriage, work, etc. It’s something I’d tune in if I can’t focus and just want to relax.
Ten Percent Happier: the overall topic is how to be happier and features guests that tackle the issue from different angles.
Hidden Brain: similar to freak economics, it’s about apply principles of economics to analyse events/phenomenons/behaviors.
The exam room: for all vegan fanatics of curious to learn science based evidence of benefits of follow a plant based vegan diet.
Ten things to tell you: new to me podcasts that gives practical advise on anything, from how to publish a book, on summer reading lists, to how to endure pandemic.
The Lazy Genius: tips on how to focus on important things that matter to us, and be lazy and let go of things that might be important for others but not us.
this text made me smile: Be a source of light.
